I have the new DVD-RW drive by pioneer DVR-104 and 2 burning programs Nero 220.127.116.11 and InstantCD+DVD 6.4. Any effort I make to write a dvd the maximum writing speed I get is 1x. With Nero that is the maximum that I can select. With the Instant I can choose between 1x and 2x and although I select 2x it shows the remaining time is 28 minutes but it takes exactly twice as if I was writing at 1x speed. Also say that the current speed mode is 1x before I start writing. Any help please because it is very annoying to wait 1 hour for a dvd to be ready. Also the latest firmware has been tried with no use at all.
